Dark Days in Sion
Lycanthropes are humanoids or giants who can transform themselves into animals. In its natural form, a lycanthrope looks like any other members of its kind, though natural lycanthropes and those who have been afflicted for a long time tend to have or acquire features reminiscent of their animal forms. In animal form, a lycanthrope resembles a powerful version of the normal animal, but on close inspection, its eyes (which often glow red in the dark) show a faint spark of unnatural intelligence.
Lycanthropy is a curse that can be spread like a disease. Usually a lycanthrope begins life as a normal humanoid or giant who subsequently contracts lycanthropy after being wounded by a lycanthrope. Such a creature is called an afflicted lycanthrope. lycanthropes who are born as lycanthropes are known as natural lycanthropes. Natural lycanthropes may evolve into Greater Lycanthropes once they reach 8HD.
There are many legends about the Curse of Lycanthropy and its origins. The Greater Curse of Lycanthropy is even more fearsome. Players who wish to play a lycanthrope can either adopt a Lycanthrope Template or a Lycanthrope Bloodline.
